Abstract

Import demand models using quarterly data for Malaysian palm oil in the EU and U.S. markets were constructed for the period 1980 through 1995. The null hypothesis of no parameter change on the models was tested. Results show no evidence of structural break in palm oil importation for both the U.S. and EU markets. Palm oil and soybean oil prices remain highly significant in affecting palm oil importation over the study period. It can be inferred from the results that any exogenous shocks, including the negative promotion against palm oil by the American Soybean Association in the late 1980s may not pose persistent repercussions on imports for Malaysian palm oil in both the EU and U.S. markets in the long run.
